How to Make mom's easy northern bean soup


  1. dice your veggies and set aside , drain your northern beans and set aside , in a large pot add your water and your veggies (not your beans tho) stir in your seasoning's and the chicken base. bring to a boil and simmer , just until your veggies are tender crisp. now add your beans and ham bone continue to simmer for 30 minutes with the lid on the pot , stir often. my husband can't get enough of this soup it's one of his favorites ,
    enjoy :-)
  2. as far as spices go of course feel free to season to taste and depending on your brand of chicken base you may want to just add alil at a time to taste because ham is salty as well. this soup is very forgiving and can be easily adjusted to suit your family's taste :-)
